How to Block Unknown Callers?

Are you receiving a lot of calls from blocked phone numbers? Telemarketers, creditors, and even your ex can block their numbers, preventing you from knowing who is calling. If you’re experiencing harassing phone calls from numbers you can’t see, take control of your phone back by blocking them. See Step 1 below to learn how.

Possible thieves, if they have a silver or light grey car, you are being cased. If you have been robbed with no other information use this comment to the police or sheriff department.

The caller is a large scam operator using multiple scams. Recorded messages are usually from "Jennifer". The scammer uses numerous "spoofed" numbers (11 area codes since 7-21-16). It is a "phishing" operation trying to con folks into providing their credit card or bank account numbers. Best advice: If you don't recognize the number, or your caller-id displays "unknown", "unavailable" "out-of-area" "private" etc. DO NOT ANSWER THE CALL. Doing so will only validate your number as a working number, and your nightmare will just be beginning. NEVER call the number back -- even if you block your own number from displaying on a caller-id, they get your number anyway by unblocking your number! If you do answer a call and hear a recording, hang up immediately--do not press any key.

Sounded like an East Indian that wanted to know who my auto insurance is with. When I asked if I had solicited the call, they hung up. Dang, I was just about to tell him that I charge $100 per hour for unsolicited phone calls, with 1 hour minimum.

Beast Cancer Awareness scam. They started calling the other day at 7:45 am, and I blocked their number after their third call. Once that number was blocked, they started calling from a different number. Blocked that one. Now they're on their third number. I assume they'll switch to yet another number now. Reputable charities don't use cell phones to solicit donations, and they seem to have an endless supply of different cell phone numbers.

I have received several call from these scammers who tell me I am qualified for a gov't grant. They are obviously calling from a boilerroom, and the caller usually has an Indian accent. They give another number to call and a claim number. If they answer (usually they don't) they want your bank account number. This is a Federal crime - why doesn't the gov't (who monitors our $3 purchase at Starbuck's) put these guys out of business?

Received a call today 8-16-16 from this number indicating my e-mail was sending out pornographic material. I advised them that I knew that this was a scam and I did not give them any information regarding my e-mail address or anything else. I did;however, advise them that I would check this out with my server and if in fact this did not happen I was going to report their number to the States Attorneys Office. Needless to say they immediately hung up.

This number keeps calling my phone. I just don't answer. Though they call again and again. Cause, I guess they figure,I'll pick up eventually. If you do answer the call from this number, and they say nothing. HANG UP IMMEDIATELY!!!! They are trying to copy your number. So they can use it for their own use. It only takes a few seconds for them to copy it to the phone their using or for another phone they have somehow enjoyed with the same line their calling from. I've never answered the call myself.

The caller keeps calling. I finally answered and he said his name was Joe. Told me he saw that I was interested in information about SSI. I told him my attorney was handling this for me and his services were not required. He said GREAT, let me tell you about what we have to offer...I told him again that my attorney was handling this for me and then I hung up.

I just experienced the same thing. Craigslist, home for rent, fill out a questionnaire, send a refundable security deposit and will FedEx the keys, move in immediately, sight unseen. If we didn't like it we could send keys back and get a refund. Thinking probably not. When things are too good to be true they most likely are.

334-384-0332 is a "spoofed" number, which means that whoever called you "tricked" your caller ID to display an incorrect phone number. Telemarketers do this so you cannot complain, but they failed... you can still file a complaint here to fight back against unethical telemarketers.

Last post by David Cohen,
Multiple automated calls from this number were on my home answer machine stating: "The reason for this call is the IRS is filing a lawsuit against you. Please immediately call our dept # 515-227-0955." No name was given of the caller, nor did they use my name on the message. Undoubtedly a hoax. Beware!
